[slime-devel] slime in its own frame?

how can i reliably start the slime repl running in its own dedicated  
frame? this little code snippet does open a new frame and start slime  
running inside it with the new slime frame the active frame.   
however, if i launch the new frame and then RESELECT my original  
frame with the mouse while "*inferior-lisp*" is booting but before  
the "*slime repl*" actually starts running, then the "*slime repl*"  
actually gets opened back in the original frame.

that is, i want the "*slime repl*" to start in whatever frame the  
*inferior-lisp* buffer was started in, not whatever the currently  
active  frame happens to be.

(defun slime-own-frame ()
   (let* ((inf "*inferior lisp*"))
     (switch-to-buffer-other-frame inf)
     (with-current-buffer inf (slime))
     (bury-buffer inf)))
